I have a iphone 4
updated to 5.0.1 from 4.3.5 (did the no bb update)
so i updated to 5.0.1 with the no bb update via redsnow.
the phone works great but when i plug into itunes to do a restore from back in order to get all my contacts and pics it doesnt give me the option.
when i go to edit> preferences > devices i can see my previous restores there.
i really need to restore from a back up in order to get my contacts.

If you have no other choice beside doing a restore to 4.3.5. I would suggest to do the following steps:
1. Use iFaith to create a signed custom firmware for 5.0.1 (just in case you want to restore at a later time)
2. If you have SHSH saved by Cydia or Tinyumbrella the a restore to 4.3.5 is possible. Otherwise, don't bother.
3. Use older version of iTunes to restore 10.4 or 10.5.0 to avoid Error(1) on restore to 4.3.5
